Rhododendron said:So, let me get this straight... Boca Juniors, one of the oldest, most successful clubs in Argentine history, who are currently playing better football than any of the other clubs you've mentioned (perhaps with the exception of San Lorenzo) are - for some reason - not interesting?
I never said that Boca isn't an interesting club to visit. I just don't fall for the media hype that Boca "is the team of the people", that they have the most fanatic hinchas or the best stadium. Many foreigners go and see a Boca match simply because they don't know any better. I've seen numerous matches of different teams, but can't say that my visit to Boca was in any way more impressive than the other clubs.
If you look just a little further than the Primera A clubs, there's a whole other world of argentine football. With teams that have strong ties to their neighbourhood and aren't corrupted by the money that goes round in the Primera División: Ferro Carril Oeste, Excursionistas, Atlanta, Chacarita Juniors etcetera.
Then again, never ask a River fan why he doesn't want you to go and see a Boca-match... where do you think the CARP in my nick stands for?
Oh and thanks for the advice on the tickets btw.
About waiting in the stadium for the tickets. It can take you hours isn't it? And sometimes there are no tickets left....
I bought a ticket from the web site mentioned above in a legitimate price and enjoyed it a lot.
